With an increasing amount of attention to our lifestyles as of late, a great many foods have been making their way into our radar. In particular power foods have been gaining a lot of attention and with good reason too. Given the amount of pollutants we are exposed to on any given day, the least we can do is flush them all out of our body as much as we can. The best way to do this is by eating and exercising correctly. What you put in shows out, so make sure it is good. Have a look at these super-foods that are hailed the world over for their potency.

Plus, they are great at any time of the day; breakfast, after lunch, or after dinner. Some like to mix the pulp with a bit of coconut oil for a nourishing facial.
Before you turn your nose up at this option, hear it out. Oatmeal on the surface looks bland and uninteresting which is why many choose to pass it by.

It can be dressed up with berries, honey, or cinnamon, all equally healthy accompaniments. The options is delicious for breakfast in particular and gives you the right start to your day.
Omega-3 fatty acids are a necessity although not many of us are ingesting as much of it as we should be. One of the best ways to get it is by eating salmon, which you can drizzle with a bit of olive or even coconut oil, both good for you. Make sure you know to tell good salmon apart from the bad; in other words wild salmon from salmon which has been farmed. One is rosier whilst the other is paler in comparison.

You might need to speak with your doctor too before making a solid meal plan if you have any other illnesses to factor into the equation.
